Blog 1: Woodrow Wilson’s essay “The Study of Administration”.

One of the founders of public administration is none other than President Woodrow Wilson.  He wrote this article long before he was President – when he was an academic.

For this assignment, I’d like you to read “The Study of Administration” by Woodrow Wilson.

I’m asking you to write just 4 paragraphs, each paragraph addressing one of the following:

  • What is Wilson’s main point about public administration?
    • include a quote from the essay to support your point
  • What are the three main sections of his essay?
  • Wilson makes the following statement in his essay, “It is the object of administrative study to discover, first, what government can properly and successfully do, and, secondly, how it can do these things with the utmost possible efficiency and at the least possible cost either of money or of energy.” What do you think of this statement?
  • What is Wilson’s point about politics and public administration? 

THIS assignment does not need a title page or a reference page unless you use a source other than the article itself.  Just simply write four well-written paragraphs.  You may simply repeat the question and then provide your answer. If you quote the article just put the page in parentheses (p. 6).

To provide some context for yourself, you might Google a couple items….

  • Who was Woodrow Wilson before he was President? (he was more than just President)
  • Wilson wrote his famous essay in 1887.  Provide some context – what else was happening in 1887? In Business, Communications, Transportation, Government, Culture, Art, Music?

We will discuss the essay in an upcoming class.

You will need to post something before you see other posts.  If you enter the discussion without posting, you will receive a zero for the assignment.

Why are we reading this?

One of our objectives is to understand the evolution of public administration, after all, it has not existed as a formal discipline forever.  Wilson’s article is typically pointed to as the start of the profession, so it is the baseline we work from as we discuss the evolution of PA.
